The causes of Urinary Tract Infection

Inconvenient and painful urinary tract infection is an inflammation of the lining of the bladder caused by a bacteria. To avoid the risk of complications (kidney infection or pyelonephritis) you should promptly consult your doctor who will prescribe antibiotics. Furthermore, you are not immune to a recurrence. To prevent recurrent cystitis, it is best to know the causes.

 

Anatomical Causes

We must know, although we can’t do anything: Cystitis are sometimes caused by our anatomy! Indeed, a short urethra facilitates the introduction and the rise in bladder microorganisms (bacteria such as Escherichia coli). A mechanism that facilitates the occurrence of Urinary Tract Infections. In elderly women, genital and urinary prolapse or a collapse of both bodies does not allow to completely empty the bladder and predispose to urinary infections as well.




Lack of Hydration

If you have already been subject to a urinary infection, the doctor had to tell you: you must drink, drink and drink! This advice is in cystitis preventing, but not when the infection is already installed. It is particularly valid the body becomes dehydrated. This allows to urinate more often and avoid stagnation of urine in the bladder, which promotes colonization and multiplication of bacteria, if present.

Sex (especially with Spermicide)

Some women cystitis after intercourse, it is strongly advised to urinate after it, even to opt for antibiotic treatment, if this is not enough. In addition, the use of spermicides increase the risk of urinary infection, so it is advisable to prefer other methods of contraception.

 

A Hormone Deficiency

With the arrival of menopause, the body stops producing certain hormones. The estrogen deficiency may be responsible for Urinary Tract Infections, substitution treatment can then be envisaged to address the problem.

Pregnancy or Constipation

During pregnancy or in case of constipation (both not incompatible!), the compression of the bladder through the uterus or bowel promotes urinary stasis. This again makes the bladder conducive to bacterial growth and therefore to UTIs. Only solution to prevent cystitis: drink more water and urinate.




Tight Pants and Underwear

The tight pants or underwear or too close to the body promote migration of bacteria, leading to a greater risk of developing a UTI. If you are prone to UTIs, avoid wearing tight jeans and prefer loose clothing, ideally loose dresses or skirts.

 

Lack or Excess of hygiene

Lack of hygiene of the genital area appears as a clear risk factor to cause cystitis. Moreover, it is advisable to wipe from front to back to avoid bringing forward the bacteria in the stool. But an excess of hygiene is also detrimental. Including douching, which unbalance the bacterial flora which is protective for our privacy. Finally, hygiene is good for the rest, it’s all about measurement!
